Stir Fried Tom Yum Chicken

A recipe good for quick meals. There's no need to marinate the chicken, and quite minimal ingredients, but oh-so-yummy! :)

Sometimes I find it a challenge to prepare the ingredients + cook + plate the food + take photo in the morning before I head to work. And I do wonder if next time will this kind of crazy morning be my norm, when I become a full time working mum? Haha.

But of course, nothing beats eating MSG-free lunch. And I enjoy preparing these wholesome lunch for myself, hubby and grandma. All the more when they enjoy the food :)

This is a very appetising side dish - tangy, spicy. Great for the tastebuds of preggie mums lol. I replaced the prawns with chicken, and tomatoes with cherry tomatoes. I suppose you can also add in some lime leaves for that nice fragrance. I served it with blanched broccoli (our fav veg haha) to balance out the meal.

Stir Fried Tom Yum Chicken (Recipe adapted from My Kitchen Snippets)

1. Heat up some oil in a frying pan; add in onion and garlic. Stir fry until fragrant and onion soften.

2. Add in tom yam paste; stir fry for a few second. Add in chicken and continue to stir fry until the chicken changes color.

3. Add about ½ cup of water (I did not do this) and the tomatoes. Continue to stir-fry until sauce thicken. Add in sugar and salt to taste.
